Sign up for Aug. 11 Coquitlam Walk for ALS
You can take a walk and aid a cause next month in Coquitlam.
The second annual Tri-Cities Walk for ALS is set for Saturday, Aug. 11 at Lafarge Lake in Town Centre Park. This fun-filled event will kick off at 10 a.m., with the walk beginning at 11 a.m.
The Tri-Cities Walk for ALS will feature live music, raffle prizes, AN M&M Meats barbecue, refreshments from Starbucks, facing painting and a bouncy castle for children.
Proceeds from this event go to the ALS Society of BC to fund research and to provide support for those living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ALS is a fatal neuromuscular disease that affects the person’s motor neurons, which carry messages to the muscles. When these muscles fail to receive messages, they lose strength, atrophy and die, leaving the person immobilized.
